Once I got home, I couldn't decided which tutorial I wanted to try. I liked the versatility of the infinity scarf but I also like the full coverage of the poncho. Since I had so much fabric, I was able to try a few different tutorials. They were all very easy and some took less than 10 minutes. That's my kind of project!! I ended up with 4 different covers! We'll see how well they really work when I have a squirmy baby underneath them, but for now they seem like they will be perfect. I also love that the jersey knit can be rolled up really small and won't take up a lot of room in the diaper bag. Here are the tutorials I tried, along with my finished product (they look a little funny with my big ol' bump underneath but I think you can still get the idea!) :) Also, please excuse the terrible selfies. I promise I wasn't mad event though I look like it in some of the pictures. I didn't want to wait until Jesse got home and ask him to take pictures of me so I just used the beautiful ol' bathroom mirror. I know these are not the best quality but I think they serve their purpose.
I like this one for the coverage it provides. You don't have to worry about anything slipping or moving and your back and front is fully covered. I also like the sort of assymetrical neckline and the way it drapes on the one shoulder.
This one is most like the poncho type cover that I wanted to buy. It really covers everything and is very comfortable because you don't have to worry about anything slipping or moving. If you are really looking for full coverage, I recommend making this one. It's also the easiest because it doesn't require any sewing! You fold the fabric in half and cut a hole for your head and that is it!! It doesn't get any easier than that!
This is my favorite for the way it looks. I love the polka dot fabric and I just think it looks the cutest. That being said, I don't know for sure how functional it will be. I think it will take me a while to get used to making sure it doesn't fall down on the side that is not held up by my shoulder. I'm sure with some practice this will be the perfect cover for going out and about since I can wear it as a scarf too!
This tutorial made the perfect infinity scarf. It wraps so nicely and is the perfect length. When you want to use it as a nursing cover, you kind of just drape it over your shoulders. I love the way it looks and feels but I'm not sure how well it will stay up when actually nursing, especially if you have an active baby.
So there you have it! I can't wait to try them out with that sweet baby girl! Once I've actually gotten some use out of them, I'll come back and update y'all. It will be interesting to see which ones are the most functional. Either way, for the amount of money I spent on fabric, you definitely can't go wrong trying them all!
